How long will my extensions last?
Our hair type and growth cycle is predetermined by our genes, as well as other factors such as overall health. In general, our natural lashes grow in cycles of approximately 10 to 12 weeks and undergo three growth phases. Each hair growth cycle is unique to everyone, and each individual eyelash enters the different phases at different times. When natural lashes mature and fall out, new lashes have already been growing. Lash extensions are applied to those lashes that are in the middle phase of the growing cycle. These lashes can support the length and weight of the extension and will extend the amount of time they will last without affecting the health of new lashes. As your natural lash sheds, the lash extension will be shed along with it.
With proper care, your lash extensions will last as long as your own lash, but can be maintained indefinitely with touch-ups. To keep your lash extensions looking fab-u-lash and full, we recommend getting a touch up (refill), every 2-3 weeks. Generally I like to see everyone 2 weeks after their initial appointment to determine how often touch ups will be needed. Some of my clients can go up to 4 weeks between touch up appointments. So if you are really wanting amazing lashes it really is important to know when to come back for a touch up appointment since my appointments are based on time.
